Katie Couric is considering jumping to ABC after her “CBS Evening News” contract expires in the next couple of weeks, Bloomberg reports.
The 54-year-old anchor is expected to announce later this week that she is leaving “Evening News.” The insiders say she still has not made a final decision what she will do, according to the report. Scott Pelley of “60 Minutes” is widely expected to take over as anchor of “Evening News.”
Couric has reportedly met with ABC News President Ben Sherwood to talk about the possibility of her joining the network. Couric is receiving advice from her former boss at NBC, Jeff Zucker, the story says.
A spokesman for ABC declined to comment for the story.
